jeans and a nice top Christmas night out outfit: black faux leather jacket, gold hair slides, sparkle zebra print hight neck top, black jeans, black heeled sandals, black circle bag with gold studs

It's party season and you know what that means - trying not to embarrass yourself at the work Christmas do, thinking gingerbread and prosecco is a viable breakfast and a lot of 'night out' outfits. This can mean many things, but one of the most fail safe dress codes during this time of year is jeans and a nice top. Sounds simple enough, but let's face it, it can be frustrating finding the right pair of jeans and the just the right level of dressy but something you'll get your wear out of for your top half. Well my friends, this year, I think I've nailed the jeans and a nice top dress code. I've found the jeans. I've found the top, and I've kept the styling super simple to show you how you can wear this look for day or night.

If you've got a big Christmas night out coming up, it can be tempting to rush to the shops and buy a new sequin dress you'll only wear once, no matter how much you insist you'll find a new way to wear it. And I don't blame you, festive season was made for sparkles, after all. But I've found some pieces you can wear not just once, not just twice, but every week for the rest of the year.

A pair of black jeans are an essential for anybody's wardrobe, we know this, and even though I am still loyal to my ASOS farleigh jeans, I may have fallen in love with this pair of kick flares from Weekday. Proper quality denim, comfy as anything and they suck you in after one too many mince pies. Perfect. I've paired mine with an on-trend, sparkly animal print top. Great not just for going to the local on Christmas Eve, but for throwing on with a pair of trainers for any old occasion. Who says sparkles are just for Christmas, after all?

I picked up this zebra print top on a bit of a whim, after spying it in the last chance section of Liverpool's topshop store and having seen it on @bexrobb's Instagram stories the night before. I've been on the hunt for the perfect top for the 'jeans and a nice top' dress code, but I've always struggled - one's too cropped, one's too sheer, one's too casual. Until now. Like, I genuinely believe I might have cracked the jeans and a nice top code. Where's my medal?
